Hi All.

I have a computer on my account that doesn't belong to me called 'Aaron's touch'. It appeared one day and i have no idea who this guy is. I have a few comps on this account, a few at home and some at my wife's office, mostly on wifi, could it somehow just hook up to my account?

TIA, NIck.

We don't see computer names, so can you post the hostID number?

I forwarded that to development, asked them to check and see what they can find out about it.

OK, I've sent you a private message with some IP addresses for you to compare against the IP addresses you have access to.

Hi there.

Mystery almost solved! There was another computer at the office, a filemaker server, but I still have to figure out how it got named in such a weird way. comp number 5641726 used to have another name but somehow it has changed too.

Thanks for your help.

Glad to have given some pointers. :-)
I'll let the administration know that there's no apparent bug.

There is a final oddity though, 5641726 and 5641664 don't have their 'official' computer names anymore. All the others have the name that I see in the OSX sharing preferences section. At the office there was a period where they had people 'borrowing' the wi fi for a while.
